Hello Everyone,

Please find attached the latest report for Outdoor scores submitted and received by the end of September 2016.
Congratulations to the following who have achieved or re-achieved classifications:
  • Hannah Powell - Junior Master Bowman
  • Laura Tudor - Bowman
  • Colin Davies - First Class
  • Harry Lakhiana - Second Class
The 2016 Outdoor season reports will close on Sunday 30th October.  So please make sure you submit your scores by this date.

To all those who haven't yet discovered the Berkshire Archery Association website, use the following link to see where you stand in Berkshire!

There are two ranks.  Firstly the 'Leisure Ranking' is for all archers.  I submit the scores you have achieved during the month, either at the club or at a competition.  Any official round is eligible. You must submit 3 scores before your name will appear. The average of your best three score handicaps are used to rank you against other archers in the county.

The 'Competition Ranking' is intended for adult archers who would like to put their name forward for selection to shoot for the county.  Archers must submit a relevant 12 dozen round score.  If you'd like me to put your name forward for this ranking, please let me know.  Only one score is required and if the round is shot at a tournament it attracts a 2 point handicap improvement.  From next year, this selection process will be extended to junior archers.  I will let you know the eligible rounds for each age group when they have been published.

If you have any questions let me know!
